Latest Trump tweet and Louisiana

Things have been slow on here and I was amused by this, this morning.  Apparently, in Louisiana for party nomination choices, the GOP will break up its delegates on who they vote for.  So, if Delegate A's area votes for Trump, they vote for Trump.  If Delegate B's area votes for Cruz, they vote for Cruz. 

Initial reports had come out that Louisiana's delegates were voting for Trump but, actually, 18 are voting for Trump, 18 are voting for Cruz, and 5 were going to vote for Rubio...because this election happened before he dropped out.

Here is what Trump tweeted about this:  "Just to show you how unfair Republican primary politics can be, I won the State of Louisiana and get less delegates than Cruz-Lawsuit coming"

Dore, who is the head of the Louisiana GOP, said that proportional votes from delegates were rules in place before Trump was even a candidate.  I also cracked up when Dore pointed out that, although it is unclear who Trump is threatening to sue, the Louisiana GOP is ready and confident in their rules...jic it is them.

  • I had also heard there was a petition going around to let there be open carry guns in the Republican convention.  Is this for real?

  • Each state has their own rules- suck on that Donald.  Also, typically, they can't change their vote until the second round of votes- something that happens only in an open convention.  That's my understanding.  So right now, he's still tied with Cruz.

    Yes, it's in an open carry state.  People are up in arms (pun intended) about the fact that guns would be banned at the convention, thus the petition.

    ok - I wasn't sure if someone started that story to make the republicans look bad.
